And, make sure to check out our audience member reviews before you come:
"There's a lot happening at once in this play. It's strength is in it's ability to group and separate the madness into manageable portions and this is impressively done. There's a new darkly fun twist at every turn and the actors have mastered the mood and tone that accentuates Chuck Mee's words so well. There's enough lightheartedness and spunk in the characters and their exploits throughout to compensate for Mee's often rambling analytical philosophical triteness. Odradek's Paradise Park does it's best to convince you that that is the point. And it's a good feeling.
Two thumbs up and a beatnik snap."
- Phil Forsyth
"Paradise Park is filled with heart warming unforgettable characters. It's not something I would expect out of a play and thats why I liked it. From what I have seen in previous plays the acting in Paradise Park is a lot more authentic, with an organic style that is presented right in front of you. Paradise Park's seemingly lack of structure I believe works in the context of the story because it is a play that is set in a fantasy land. Paradise Park draws you in to its magic and lets you forget about the everyday just as the characters come to Paradise Park to escape their life."
- James Whelan
"I think it was a solid production with great performances all around. Definitely worth seeing, and it is cool to see a theater group taking chances with something interesting and with some depth, rather than Blago the Musical or similar goofy-type Saturday night party time theater. Good stuff. Do go."
"I went with the wife on [4/14] and we liked it. The actress who played the young girl was wonderful. . . It's not genius, but its worth seeing."
- Bradley M.

Take a look at some of the rehearsal photos taken just last week as we move into the final preparations for Paradise Park.
WE MADE IT! $2500 exactly with 10 hours to spare! There's not enough exclamation marks in the world to express our excitement!
Big thanks to everyone who got us there, we're feeling the love, and we couldn't have done it without you. Now on to making one badass show!
If you're familiar with the work of Charles Mee, creator of Paradise Park, you'll know that he invites others to modify his work to suit their own needs. This kind of rare temptation is just too much for the Odradek to pass up, so for the past several weeks Company Members Mark Litwicki and Jonathen Wikholm have been hard at work doing just that. They have announced the birth of their creation only a few moments ago. Congratulations to "fathers" Mark and Jonathen. We can hardly wait to see your offspring!
Actors: Soon you'll be able to begin the task of breathing life and movement into this latest Odradek production! The excitement mounts; the hard work for many now commences.
The good news from Kickstarter! $1,230 pledged. We're well on our way to our funding goal. Thanks to all for making the Odradek smile (something that stretches his star points!)
Today, the Odradek is not returning to his lair under the cellar stairs. Instead, he's going spend the afternoon contacting his friends to let them know that it's not too late (in fact it's very timely) to make a gift to Odradek's version of Paradise Park.
You can help, too. Join us as we celebrate the birth of our latest creation. Tell your friends! Tell your Mom and Dad! Tell your wife, husband, partner, kids, aunts and uncles.
Meanwhle, the Odradek spins on his star points, up the cellar stairs and out the front door to spread the good word!
Grane! Over here, my faithful steed, Grane! Hoyotoho! Hoyotoho! Heiaha! Heiaha!
